DIBRUGARH, June 17 - The Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) here has urged Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to allot land pattas to all classes of people who are not foreigners and who have been staying in the State for several decades now.
In a memorandum submitted to the Chief Minister through the district administration here, the district unit of the KMSS said that it had on several occasions urged the local administration to issue land pattas to citizens, but the Revenue Department had not taken any steps so far.
The Dibrugarh district unit of the peasant organisation also raised the issue of the National Food Security Act. The quantity of foodgrains and the subsidized rates are not uniform. The distributors or agents are charging more than Rs 3 for every kilogram of rice at several places, the KMSS unit alleged.
Several beneficiaries have not received their ration cards also, it added in the memorandum. Among other demands, the KMSS unit also demanded an enquiry into the alleged irregularities in distributing compensation among those affected due to the works on the NH-52 stretch. The organisation demanded stringent action against all those guilty in this respect and asked the Chief Minister to direct the department concerned to immediately release fair compensation to all the affected along the National Highway.
